Korn Drummer Ray Luzier and Dio guitarist Tracy G unleash Goaded "To Die is Gain"

This cd was originally recorded in 2008 and has now been given its official release through Spooky G Records and distributed through Super D distribution in North America.

The 12 song product is an unreal reminder of what kind of guitar player Tracy G is and what type of power G and Luzier bring to the world. Along with Larry Dennison on bass and Jason Witte on vocals this CD delivers a very heavy, modern and groove filled opus that keeps your attention for its 52 minutes of music.

If you are expecting the project to sound like Dio or Korn it is neither. This is a very heavy modern project with melodic yet growling type of vocals that hit you right between the ears and has its own sound.

Produced by Joe Floyd and Goaded and recorded at the G factory this is only the first release that Luzier and Grijalva will be releasing throughout 2012 from the work they have done together in the recent past. All of it showing their unique vision on music and their unique over the top abilities they both posses.

Also in the spring of 2012 there will be a book about Tracy G's time while in Dio to cover the tryouts and landing the gig in 1993 all the way to the departure in 1999. Grijalva was with Ronnie James Dio for 6 years which is longer than any other guitar player ever spent with Ronnie without leaving and coming back at one time in his career to include Blackmore and Iommi.
